146. Dan Quayle GOP Plot

March 15, 2009

Q: After Matheson took over, they started a feature in the back called the yellow pages. During the Bush the 1st years, there was a fake story about how the Republicans were going to put something in the water supply to dumb down the American people to the point where they would believe Dan Quayle was smart enough to be the next president. Any idea which issue this was? Thanks a lot.

A: I checked through all the issues in which that feature ran (which was actually called “The Yellow Journal”), but couldn’t find it. If anyone else knows, please post it in a comment.


Mediocrity Issue, I think...Let me get back to you on that one. The Mediocrity Issue from 1989 that is!
